The Republic of Androidistan is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Alexander Phoenix with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 4.398 billion Androidistanians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ashland. The average income tax rate is 73.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Androidistanian economy, worth 475 trillion Euros a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 108,133 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's ambassadors often conduct their business in jail cells, Big Brother is still watching even when your big brother is dead, motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, and 50% of adverts on children's television are for clothes made of cotton wool. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Androidistan's national animal is the Black Buck, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Androidistan is ranked 90,455th in the world and 3,026th in Osiris for Most Extreme, scoring 19.62 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
